Heh, mastodon serves mp4 files with a CSP header of 'none', so the browser refuses to play them when opened in a tab by itself. You need to open the whole web page in all its javascripty glory to get a CSP header that allows viewing video files.

Or maybe I just stop clicking on mp4 links. And nothing of value was lost.

@tedu

Trying my oldest installed browser, Basilisk 2022.01.27, with:

javascript.enabled=false

on the link:

https://static.noauthority.social/media_attachments/files/111/969/690/698/069/889/original/29829d57367eeccb.mp4

Results in it playing fine?

Why is that even possible?
How do I get my browser to say "screw your rules" and play it anyway?

@Vo oh, maybe it's server specific. just happened to notice it on one.

@tedu but I do agree that mastodon is shit software

@Hyolobrika you have to save it and play it locally.

@tedu masturbadon crapware

Why?

Why do developers and standards writers love to control people?
